9:24am

9:26am
9:27am
9:28am
there is no do you about it, you don't want to think about it. but it is best to have a plan. we are talking about school emergencies and they can happen. so be prepared. ben shipman is the head of the school. >> we love having you, usually the first thing a parent should do is basically understand the school's plan. >> absolutely every school should have what we call a crisis management plan, meaning that these are the steps we take, depending on whatever crisis. there are all kinds of drills we need to do now. look at what just happened at
9:29am
johns hopkins. you as a parent need to make sure you know what your school has planned in case of an emergency like that. for example, the school goes on lockdown mode. communication is critical. , you, as a parent, need to know how the cool communicates, for example, some schools use phone systems that call automatically from computers, because of that, you as a parent, the first step you want to do is make sure the school has accurate information of how to contact you if there is an emergency. give them a cell number and work number. the emergency card, don't fill it out. make sure whoever you want the school to contact is on that emergency card. >> we see that now with college campuses sending out texts. >> absolutely is critical,
9:30am
because we don't know in this society what kind of emergencies, unfortunately, are going to happen in schools it is another thing parents need to do is really make sure that they give alternatives, other than themselves contacts. so many times we don't have written permission anywhere. we can't let the child go with that person. make sure you think who in the world could possibly pick up my child. make sure it is in writing. >> so an emergency contact other than yourself? >> that is critical. you said one of the most important having a password. what do you mean by that? >> i think it is important for students to have a sense of comfort. if you as a parent have a password you share with your child, so if a neighbor or someone strange is coming to pick them up, the person knows the password, the child knows it is safe to go with them. the other piece is let's move
9:31am
beyond that. let's say your child is in a difficult or frightening situation and they don't want to explain what is going on. call you or texting you just the password is there is something going on i need to get to my child right away. you know, we can't protect everyone, 100% of the time but doing these few little steps gives your child a critical sense of security and safety. >> we really do have to change the way we think. when a lot of us were growing up, none of these things didn't happen. now schools go in lockdown mode. many things can happen and we don't know what to predict. a crisis management plan will be in place and the school will react to it. and you, as a parent, need to make sure the information you
9:32am
have given the school is accurate, up to date. >> ben, always good to have you in. >> thank you for your station, for always supporting education. >> we love it when you come in. you have great advice. >> thank you, i hope everyone is off to a great school year and hope to be back soon to talk about more interesting issues. >> absolutely. kids go on to college and jamie is there with miriam king. >> reporter: it is time to ask miriam. the king of the college life in baltimore. i'm in a fight with all my co-workers over the way i'm parenting my daughter up in college. i said she can at least tell me she is alive, every night. what do you think? >> i think texting does make that possible. having your son or daughter touch base is really important. but you don't want to hover too close. >> you call those helicopter
9:33am
parents? >> yes, we do. >> what up to do is have a dialog with your daughter about what's going on, so she wants to talk to you. it is sometimes hi, mom, too busy to call. >> skypeing is a great idea. >> have it once a week, a regular time. >> so when the student calls from college, you are very accepting, oh, thank you for calling, right? >> yes. >> but don't call them? >> right. it is better not to. >> and no surprise visages definitely not. you want to go and participate in the activities that they plan for parents and families. that way, you can feel a part of the experience of the student be not guilty college. let's go on the other side. the student that always witness to come home? >> i would encourage independence. if your son or daughter is coming home to do laundry, it
9:34am
may be same they learned to do laundry on their own. >> right. >> so it is a good idea to say well aren't there coin operated machines in the residence hall? and do you need me to tell what you to do and so on. the thing about coming home all the time is they are not making a connection as much with the social life that goes on, on the weekend on campus and that is something you want them to experience. get out, join the club? >> yes, become engaged. we want students to stay in college and finish in four years. the best thing to do is particularly in that first semester, encourage them to connect and be happy. if you are knowledgeable about the different support services on campus, when at the call with a problem you can say gee, i
9:35am
read you can go to the counseling center for this. or have you been to the office to find out if there is a tuition payment plan? you make them a partner. that is part of the transition. >> should parents know about the roommate? >> yes. i think it is nice to know who the roommate is. but you can't, as a parent, inconvenient a lot with the roommate, because that is a relationship you are on the periphery of. and megan notes i have a hotline set up at the police department. >> you are saying you better get the alerts? >> i think it is good for both the student and the parents and again, as was just suggested what you want to do is know what are the protocols and procedures, so you are not guessing at that time should
9:36am
something happen. hopefully your daughter is going to have a wonderful experience. >> turn around and tell megan i'm right. >> that is because you are standing by him. >> you know more than i do. >> when it comes to downs syndrome, many people don't talk enough about it. coming up, those in our area are changing that. they need your help, we are going to tell you how to participate in a great event this weekend to help those with down's syndrome. fall's a funny thing. feels like 80 right now at owens mills. coming up, stick around, there is more of "good morning maryland," after this.
9:37am
9:38am
9:39am
we are truly honored to have dr. george ca bone. for 20 years he has cared for those with down's syndrome. he is the director of the down's syndrome clinic at kennedy kreiger institute. we had monica last year, she was a great ambassador. how did you get into down's syndrome? >> well, as you may know, down's syndrome is a remarkably common conditioned.
9:40am
affects about 1 in 800 births around the world. as someone with pediatric training and training in neuroscience and development, down's syndrome presented a lot of the right kinds of questions and challenges for me. as an academic person. and the parents and the families are absolutely remarkable, and extremely remarkable to work with. >> are there more george ca bones coming up through the ranks? >> there are a few. we need to train the scientists and healthcare providers on i want level disability. true or false, children with down's syndrome will never be independent? >> that's false. i think time and experience has taught us so many of tease kids grow up to be very independent, and at least semiindependent,
9:41am
requiring maybe minimal supervision and guidance. i think that is a myth. there are some individuals who can't achieve full independence, but fortunately, that is the exception. >> here's another one. children with down's syndrome will be a burden to their families? >> they are a joy to their families. they are a tremendous reason for celebration. frequently, the birth of a child with down's syndrome comes with a little bit of a surprise or an unexpected event, although more and more, it is becoming an expected and welcomed event. what you'll find is parents will do a remarkable job of figuring out and constructing for themselves what the meaning of down's syndrome and what it means to have a child with this condition in their family. there is no physician or professional who can describe
9:42am
that in sufficient detail. >> reporter: you want to see some of these family, go out to the airport. 24th year now? >> 24th year. they have been supporting the down's syndrome clinic at kennedy kreiger. without their support we couldn't do half of what we do in terms of clinical research and providing some special community based activities for our older adults. and teenagers who are being mentored by the older kids. but the event is a family event. is a fun event, it is an opportunity to come out and meet children and adults with down's syndrome. dr. ca bone, we'll see you on sunday walking again. we put that information on
9:43am
our website. look at this, this is cotton. and dr. fair mondayty. if you have questions for the doctor, we will take your calls and answer, we are live on the air. call 410-877-4100. we'll have more answers to questions, after the break. at 5:00. the tax on everything you buy?
9:44am
that's in andy harris' unfair tax plan. 23% sales tax. a 23% sales tax will cut my business in half. would be devastating. andy harris' 23% sales tax absolutely makes no sense. 23% sales tax would really make things unaffordable. that's too high for the average american out here. i don't know how we would manage it really. don't like that idea.
9:45am
we can't afford andy harris' idea. i'm frank kratovil and i approve this message.
9:46am
this is cotton? i don't this is cotton. cotton is a prop to maryland spca. cotton has just had surgery, so we have a nice collar on. we thought we'd talk for a minute or two about what to do when your pet comes home after surgery, okay? it is important to remember animals that have had surgery have gone through a fairly traumatic period of time ask they need time to acclimate back home. don't give food or water for about an hour, let them run around the house and get used to the environment again. you want to give him a small amount of water, and wait an hour or so and then some food.
9:47am
in addition you want to him their activity if they have had minor surgery, you usually have to keep your animal question for a day or two. if they have had major surgery, like cotton, keep them quiet for seven to 14 days. we put a collar on and when cotton tries to lick, he won't be able to do anything. he is very, very saturday. he is a nice dog. we have brenda from brooklyn park on the phone. she has a 12-year-old jack russell terrier dog, what is the problem? >> i can't get rid of the worms with him. he eats grass, and i can't get rid of them. his heartworm pills says that should take care it have. >> how old is the jack? >> 12 and a half. >> okay.
9:48am
then you are right. heartworm medication doesn't always control all the internal worms. what up to do is make sure every three to six months, you are really worming this animal aggressively. take him to your vet and have him professionally world. in addition, it is important to remember most of the worm eggs will die out in the environment in the wintertime. in february or march, after a cold women and lots of frozen ground, those eggs and the worm eggs should all be dead. that is another good time to make sure you worm your pet. that will break the cycle in the environment. do you live out in the country? are there a lot of wild animals around? >> no but we have a rat problem in this area. >> rats don't usually carry worms. but fox and raccoons and deer do. i would urge you, because there is a heavy worm infestation in your pet, to make sure you keep that treated. that just takes the animal's
9:49am
strength and at 12 years old it ages them more. i think it is important to do that, have your veterinarian do it to make sure you get it good. good luck with that. don't forget about cotton. you can find him at the maryland spca. today's hot topic is about the cougar term for older women. do you find it offensive? >> melissa writes cougar is a cute word for older, sexy women that have still got it all. >> singia likes it. no offense here. if you would like to join the club, drop us a common. looking for something to do this weekend or a good cause to support? we have a few good ideas we could tie into your schedule. still ahead on "good morning maryland" 9.
